7:03 am
thought, wow, this is dangerous. >> reporter: to the south a surfer died after he was found unconscious in an unsupervised area of cocoa beach, florida. this weekend officials warned swimmers about rip current, that can move the water eight feet per second. they're created when water gets trapped along the shoreline by strong waves until it finds a place to escape back to the sea, like sand bars. >> i notice it's been very rough the last couple of days. it's good boogie boarding currents, but a little -- probably a little dangerous. >> reporter: after saturday's rescues, many new jersey beaches were closed for swimming. and forecasters say earl could strengthen into a major hurricane, a category 3, as soon as today. well, the surf is already building here if north carolina. the most recent track has hurricane earl brushing by the mid-atlantic later this week, but it also has it intensifying as high as a category 4 storm.
7:04 am
that would mean even more heavy surf here. i can tell you the folks here in north carolina hoping that earl stays out at sea. harry? >> gotta right. don teague in kitty hawk, north carolina, this morning, thank you very much. our dave price is here, looking at the maps, looking at the models. what can you tell us? >> looks like we're saying good-bye to danielle. taking a turn to the north and east right now. let's ignore that for the time being. this several, what we're talking about. right now we're talking about tropical storm force winds that extend 200 miles from the storm center and it's just rolling through the leeward islands. again, a lot of the vacation spots for folks in the u.s. mainland. keep in mind, as this rolls through, our concern is not only high winds, but the rains. in many of those areas where there is mountain terrain, you're talking about the possibility of mudslides as well, moving 15 miles per hour. the track should just buzz the

east coast butfy variation could be certainly will consequence to places like carolinas up through the northeast. more in a little while. back to you, harry and rebecca. >> thank you. now to politics and the fallout from the huge glenn beck rally in washington over the weekend. conservatives from all over the country turned out, voiced their anger at washington. democrats are worried anger could cost them in november. cbs news congressional correspondent nancy cordes is in washington with more. good morning. >> good morning. republicans argue the enormous turnout we saw them can only help them in november and the energy is on their side. but this crowd comes with strings attached. they're demanding changes even republicans might not be willing to make. >> this really is build it and they will come. >> reporter: glenn beck gave the call and they came, by the thousands. >> i know that many of us today, we are worried about what we face. >> reporter: estimates of the crowd varied widely from under
7:06 am
100,000 to more than 600,000. but to matter the size, supporters say the enthusiasm of the crowd was a sign. not just of the growing influence of beck and sarah palin among leading conservatives, but of the passion of that group as midterm elections approach. >> we came to support conservativism, low taxes, small government. >> that is going to translate on the booth in november. >> reporter: tea party victories have unseated republican establishment candidates in florida, kentucky, south carolina and elsewhere. in alaska's senate primary, the votes are still being counted but the tea party candidate has the edge. >> so you want to phase out medicare, you want to privatize social security? >> we want to get back to basics. restore, essentially the constitutional foundation of the country. >> we're in the midst of a political revolution. >> reporter: if republicans ride
7:07 am
a wave of tea party enthusiasm into power this fall, it's the tea party activists they'll have to answer to. >> when republicans get into power, that group of activists could want more from them than they can ever deliver. >> the crowd at the rally saturday fell into two categories. tea partiers who told us they want drastically lower taxes and christian conservatives calling for a much greater role for religion in public life. harry? >> nancy cordes in washington, thank you. joining us from austin, texas, is republican strategist dan bartle bartlett, good morning. >> good morning. >> from your perspective, somebody in the political business, what do you make of the rally? >> i think it shows what nancy's report shows, that is in this election cycle there is an enthusiasm between the two party. the tea party and whoever else assembles with the tea party, like they did this weekend, is done straighting that republicans in this election cycle coming up in november have
7:08 am
that advantage. particularly, harry, in midterm elections, that is a crucial difference. >> they have the passion. does this translate, though, to, in the end, political victory in the fall, because you look at some of the candidates who benefitted from tea party support, as they get closer to the election itself, they find themselves moving from the right closer to the center? >> well, i think there's two things going on. first, you have the tea party activists that do a lot of the hard spade work, going out, passing out bumpers stickers, putting yard signs. that's a critical part of the midterm election. you couple that with the larger narrative of this election, the bad economy, particularly on the left, the disconcerning developments in afghanistan. you add those three things together, the tea party activists being very upset, a bad economy, we have a critical jobs report this friday that will set the tone for the fall campaign, and on top of that, what's going on in afghanistan. the president will be speaking to the nation about iraq.
7:09 am
he's also going to use it as an opportunity to talk about afghanistan. that is a very toxic combination for democrats as they go into november. these tea party activists are stirring it up. >> from your perspective, you look at sarah palin, if she gives you your blessing, i mean her track record has been quite remarkable. >> it is in the context of a midterm election where there's very narrow differences with regards to the number of people who can make the difference in the election. i think if you start moving beyond the midterm election and start galvinizing an election in a presidential election, it would far more difficult for her organizers to are that greater impact. some people are speculate being her future, but she is making her mark if these very specific races across the country. >> dan barle ette, we appreciate your insight. thank you very much, sir. >> all right, harry. now to those trapped miners in chile. drilling is scheduled to begin today to rescue the miners as
7:10 am
their families keep vigil in a tent city dubbed camp hope, after they received new messages from their loved ones, while they wait buried more than half a mile below the surface. seth doane has the latest. good morning. >> good morning. the miners who saved themselves by rationing food may now have to take part in their own rescue, by clearing thousands of tons of rocks from below. that's once the rescue tunnel is carved out and reaches them. in the meantime, telephone wire was dropped to the miners to establish regular communication. we got a new glumgs impse of wh some of those conversations may be like. >> reporter: the new es messages from the miners to their families released late last night are both personal and painful. i miss you very much, this miner tells the camera. we're trying to survive down here in our way. entombed nearly half a mile below ground, some are shirtless
7:11 am
and suffering from severe skin infections due to the heat. one miner asks someone to hug his daughter. another says, just wait for me and pray for me. above ground, drilling for the rescue tunnel should begin later today. engineers are now reportedly discussing a plan "b" to reach the miners faster. that could possibly include boring a second rescue shaft. but publicly government officials say the rescue is still three to four months away. chile's mining minister said, we will welcome any option that speeds up the rescue. to keep their minds off the ordeal, rescuers are lowering games and mp3 players to the miners, along with clothes, food psychiatrist jeffrey liebermans the euphoria from being discovered may quickly wear off. >> they're very resilient and resourceful to begin with, but
7:12 am
they're going to need to be supported psychologically and physically to get through the remainder. >> how to cope in a confined space deep underground may come from lessons learned high above. nasa will be sending experts to chile early this week to help with what's likely to be the longest experience of any trapped miners in history. rebecca? >> cbs's seth doane, thanks. harry, i love this story because it's really a matter of mind over matter, hope. and it's infused with that. >> indeed. that they were found alive and that they have the opportunity to get out thereof in one piece is quite remarkable. betty nguyen at the news desk with the rest of this morning's news. >> good morning, harry and ra ba ka. five years after hurricane katrina hit new orleans and residents, they are moving on. yesterday in the french quarter they held a funeral for katrina new orleans style. tomorrow president obama formally ends u.s. combat
7:13 am
operations in iraq, but for the 50,000 u.s. troops who remain, the end of combat operations doesn't mean the end of danger. cbs news correspondent terry mccarthy in baghdad with the latest on this. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning. we spent the last four days with u.s. troops up north here. and i have to tell you, we found a great deal of resentment about the notion that combat is over. we went on two joint patrols with u.s. and iraqi forces and they all know there are roadside bombs and insurgents out there trying to kill them. captain keith benoit leads u.s. and iraqi troops in northwest iraq and he's taking no chances. >> we've essentially been doing this same type of job since we got here last october. the mission for our soldiers has not changed. >> reporter: in washington the administration is keying to put the iraq war behind it and refocus on afghanistan. >> on tuesday, after more than seven years, the united states of america will end its combat
7:14 am
mission in iraq and take an important step forward and responsibly ending the iraq war. >> reporter: many troops have left. but there are still 50,000 u.s. service members in iraq. although violence levels have gone down, the war is far from over. >> i watch it tv. i see what's being portrayed on tv and it's almost like, you know, we're done. but we're not done. you know, we still have some work to do here. and so, you know, i don't know if the american public gets that sense. >> reporter: the underlying concern here is that if the u.s. turns its back on iraq too quickly, all those gains in security we've seen over the past few years could be put at risk. betty? >> cbs's terry mccarthy in baghdad this morning, thank you. a volcano in indonesia that's been door mantd for 400 years is erupting. the volcano in foreign sumatra, about 21,000 people have been

this sport, especially people at this age group competing at this level. when you see something like this, does it give folks pause? like maybe this isn't such a good idea? >> well, as with any high-level sport, you need to start somewhere. you can't all of a sudden jump in with both feet at a professional level without having a great deal of training. any parent who's ever sent their kid to football camp or hockey camp will know that if you want to be at your peak performance, when you're at your peak physical capabilities, you need to start quite young. all the riders that are riding in the top level in the gp level have always been riding all their lives. they're well trained. they're well protected. they have very good medical staff at all fat sicilities the to. as with anything, have you that many people going, you know, at -- racing at a high level of

8:15 am
you need to be aware of symptoms. headache is number one symptom after a concussion. you can see sleep disturbances very common, mood changes. the kid might be very moody, difficulty concentrating. and problems with memory. all of these can mimic depression, anxiety, attention deficit, and everyone needs to be aware of them. >> dr. jennifer ashton, thank you so much. it was all about the red carpet last night in hollywood. we'll show you the fashion hits and misses that's next on "the early show". >> announcer: "cbs healthwatch" sponsored by kellogg's special k product. ♪ [ female announcer ] the best way to tell how great you look is in your jeans. drop a jean size in two weeks with the special k challenge and enjoy a good source of fiber in many of your favorite special k products. ♪ jeans don't lie.

light magazine and she's here with some healthy choices. you know, you go into the stores these days and there are racks and rack and racks of these things. they're exploding overnight. i didn't know there were different kinds. >> there are different kinds and different nutrient content. we have to be really careful as to what bars we're picking up. some bars are nothing more than glorified candy bars. every single bar -- we'll go through the purpose. some are pre-workout, post-workout. some had to have three grams of protein, three grams of fiber, no transfats, whole grains and less than 20 grams of sugar. one has 21 and we'll explain why that is. >> let's go down through the different categories. this is one you feel really good for women. >> yes. luna bars were created by women for women because it has specific nutrients women need, including folate and calcium. now, luna bars are 180 calories.
8:41 am
they are nine grams of protein and five grams of fiber. this is a great bar whether you want to eat it to tie over a meal. because of the protein content it's good post-workout. >> also, we have kids -- this is for kids. >> yes. there are a lot of unhealthy breakfast bars on the market on we like this bar because it's three grams of fiber and three of protein which help kids feeling full for a long period of time. >> not so many calories. >> no. it's good for the pint-size kids. giving them a lot of nutrients in this small bar. this is actually a much healthier alternative than most snacks out there. >> especially if you're thinking about in the morning, as you run out of house, it's important to get your engine going, right? >> exactly, exactly. it's sweet enough kids like this bar. the crock lat and brownie flavor, who can resist that? >> this is a pre-workout bar? >> let's talk about the pre and post bars.
8:42 am
the preis focused on carbohydrate content. this bar is loaded with chia seedses, oats, dried fruit. that will give you energy to get through your workout. this bar is 160 calories, 3 grams of protein, low in fat, only 2 grams, and gives you 4 grams of fiber which help to give you sustainable energy throughout the workout. >> pretty tasty, too. that's preworkout. this is best protein. >> so, the protein is what you want after a workout. protein is responsible for repairing and rebuilding muscle. >> that makes all kinds of sense. >> 210 calories, 13 grams of protein. that's the equivalent of two ounces of chicken. so, this bar really packed with protein, lower in carbs and sug sugar. a great bar after a workout. >> it has some fat in it -- >> it has ten grams but 3.5 are saturated. most come from mono unsaturated,
8:43 am
heart-healthy sources. >> you call this the best meal replacement. >> when it comes for snack bars i usually recommend 100 to 200 calories to tie you over to dinner. if you're having a bar in replacement of a breakfast, lunch or snack, you want a bar with 200 to 300 calories. this bar fits that bill. little 250 calories. you'll get ten grams of seaing protein. it has five grams of fat but you want some fat in the meal replacement because it slows down digestion to keep you feeling lofuller longer. a great way to round this out is add string cheese. >> and best natural bar? >> if you're looking for a bar that's unprocessed, organic, this is what we chose. this bar is filled with nuts and with dried fruits. this bar provides a lot of energy. the carbs in the fruits provide you with the instant energy and
